These are exceptionally relevant points for those of us making and selling products. If you aren't part of the conversation, you don't know what is being said and are not in a position to combat negatives or pump up positives.

My bike blog ranks very highly in search engine placement on any searches having to do with my city and bicycling. However, that has more to do with basic search engine optimization techniques than blogging. Blogging is one of the tools that can be used, but there are other basic things your typical bike shop or vendor website designer needs to do.

Regarding being part of the conversation, I suggest reading The Cluetrain Manifesto. It's a little dated, but the prevalence of online storefronts and electronic brochures tells me that a lot of designers still need to read Cluetrain.

And as far as being part of the conversation: You guys really need to implement trackbacks. Without trackbacks a blog is nothing more than an online journal with a guestbook. With trackbacks, you truly become a part of the conversation as you enter the blogosphere. Even on blogspot you can put trackbacks on your blog.

Fritz,
About trackbacks. I agree with you. I actually had Haloscan installed on this blog a few weeks ago, but I decided against it because it erased all existing comments. I'm thinking of moving over to Typepad, what do you think?

I love what you've done with your blog. Keep it up.

And by the way, I have read the Cluetrain Manifesto...if you read my posts you'll see how it has influenced my thinking. But I'm still glad you mentioned it. Hopefully more people in the bike biz will pick up on it.

Thanks for the comment, and let me know what you think about Typepad.

Fritz

Thanks for your comments, Jonathan; you're very kind.

Regarding Typepad: My thought is that I already pay for hosting and I would download the free version of Movable Type if I ever get some free time :-) It's certainly more versatile than blogger.com, but blogger.com is working fine for me right now. To be honest, $50/year seems high to me for what they offer.

I also have this paranoia that hosting something on a server I don't control will result in years of work just disappearing if they suddenly go belly up.

I just recently added HaloScan because of the trackback capability. I agree that migrating is tough, and I hated loosing my comments. Haloscan's trackback feature is a pain to use, also.

I'll probably install some real trackback software on my server when I have a few spare hours (yeah, right!). That way, blogger.com commeents are seperated out from the trackback capability. Or I might just download the limited free Movable Type software.

Hi Everybody!
It seems like I know alot of you already. That seems weird, but I have been lurking as you call it for a few weeks - now its an addiction LOL! I wake up to check posts and before bed and some in between!

My name is Cheryl and I am 38 - almost 39 in a couple weeks (yuck!) and I live in Ontario, Canada about 2 hours north of the border. It's in the "boonies" as all my friends say and anyone that comes here! LOL. We have already had snow and probably more this week. It is a long winter, so more projects!! We have no cel phone service, one radio station - sometimes, and one TV station! I could get satellite but then I'd spend more time watching TV and not get anything done. I would like to get HGTV tho and the other decorating channels, but then you know what happens!

I've lived here for almost 5 years with my teenage daughter who is now 14 - 15 in Jan (another Yuck! 15!!!!)Where does the time go? The house was a hunting camp but it had insulation, septic and power, but it was very small under 500 sq ft. WE lived in one room till she was 11 in bunk beds till I carved a room out of the living room for her! It's in the middle of tons of big pine trees, so hence my username.

I have started seeing someone in Feb who I knew years before. He stopped in where I worked and he was like, what are YOU doing up here! He had been up here for 3 years too and we'd never met. He just happens to be a carpenter and that's oh so handy! This summer we added an addition on and doubled the size of the house! It's great and now my daughter has my old room, which she loves! He's also great in supporting my "habit"and helps me load and goes on hunting trips too. He even has the good idea!

I worked at the local garage doing bookeeping and I left in April to start my own things! It's crazy how busy I am and how I managed to do it all before working 40 hours. I am currently selling collectibles from my Dads and Grandpa's estate on ebay. I also go to the garage sales and flea markets, auctions and wherever to get tons of 'JUNK'. Also I am restoring a building down at my moms to make into a store, hopefully open in the spring! It will be antiques, new stuff and things made from salvage - lots of the items I see on here would be great! They also give me great ideas for my stuff!! I have been inspired by your creations to look at things in new ways now, I just grabbed a patterned broken flower pot and "SAW" mosaics!

I have many projects on the go, I have to decorate, paint and redo the new spaces in the house, figure out the kitchen layout now. I have some furniture I want to refinish and I am also cleaning out a barn of my Grandpa before nov 30! It is full of stuff and when I see old shutters, old windows, old posts, spindles, wrought iron, I think of you guys and what I can do with them. I have a notebook beside my computer that I write down all that I am interested in and the great ideas. I also found out about you from googling mosaics and I'm so glad! I will keep you posted as I go!

I want to say that I enjoy coming here and seeing everyones efforts, You all have made me laugh and made me cry. I cant get over slowmedown and her creativity and verve for life. Haziemoons craft room transformation blew me away in its speed and idea. Loved the painted screens, always like to hear from Cait in Oz and am amazed at curbdivers attitude in adversity. All of your replies to bigfndl humbled me and made me realize that you are all a great bunch of people. Is there room for one more?
